YOUTH CLASS
Martial Arts

(Ages 7-12)

Develop. Grow. Express.

This class is a fun environment where youth learn self-discipline, self-respect, and self-defense.  They will develop team work and individual skills such as, balance and coordination.  It's a place where they get to yell, kick, punch, and generally have fun while gaining new skills and becoming mentally and physically stronger. 

Class Schedule

EARNING RANK

Tests for youth are approximately every 4 to 6 months.

 

During that time youth are challenged to earn 5 Goal Stripes per rank to show their progression, before testing for their next belt.  This helps ensure that students are well prepared for their physical and written tests.

 

Each day is a progression towards a student's next rank, culminating towards a challenging physical and mental test for each belt level.  An official test for rank is a way to show our student's mental and physical growth.
